+ Open Staff Positions

Hi guys!

We’re looking for new staff for the forum.  If you’ve got time, devotion, and a love of BJD, consider filling out the application!

+ Quick note

You may recall that around Christmas, DoA did its usual charity work and adopted a family and bought a bunch of toys to donate.  Unfortunately, we were among the people who got their card information stolen, and as a result our card was shut down and reissued.

The new card hasn’t arrived yet and our hosting company is unable to receive our payment.  We’ve always had a good payment history with them (always on time!), so they said they’re just chilling until the payment is received.  However, I’m not 100% confident that this has been worked out with both the owner and the accounting department… so if we go down due to what appears to be non-payment, I’ll give them a call and get it switched back on.

I’m normally pretty quiet about DoA’s hosting/money stuff, but I just don’t want anyone to panic or think that the forum’s going away or having financial problems. :)  Again, we’re not likely to go down, but I wanted to post just in case.

Dollism Plus US →

We are excited to announce that DoA will be partnering with Dollheart and Mint on Card to present the largest ball-jointed doll convention ever in the United States – Dollism Plus US in September of 2014!

Date: 19th to 21st September, 2014
Venue: Hyatt Regency, Buffalo

Dollism Plus is a ball-jointed doll convention hosted by DollHeart in Hong Kong since 2006 (Dollism Plus – Tokyo was hosted in 2012). We are inviting doll makers and artists from all over the world to attend this event. While we have not yet invited vendors, past events have had many of the most popular Asian companies, including Luts, LeekeWorld, DoD, LatiDoll, Peakswoods, Crobidoll, Switch, BlueFairy, Nine9 Style, Another Space, RosenLied, IOS, Sadol, Pipos, DollZone, and AngelStudio. We will be bringing many talented companies to join us, as well as offering the opportunity to our some of our Western BJD retailers and artisans.

This convention will also celebrate DoA’s 10th anniversary. In addition to Dollism Plus’s usual events, there will be a number of special DoA anniversary events and items.

The convention will be held in Buffalo, NY. This is a great location, only a short distance from the world-famous Niagara Falls, and proximity to the Canadian border and a major airline hub will allow easier travel for both US and international visitors. Western New York has great food and scenic attractions while being gentler on the wallet than many larger cities.

Registration for the full three day event is $95. The hotel block is filling quickly, so call the hotel as soon as you can!

+ FYI: Account Purges

Forum policy is to purge accounts that have belonged to the forum for over 2 months without making any posts.  We haven’t done this purge in awhile!  This morning I purged all accounts that have 0 posts and have not logged in for at least 6 months.

I am also purging all unactivated accounts that are over a year old.

Little Monica’s Bear arrived to my house today to serve as the prize for the Wig Elaboration contest on DoA!  I opened up the box to make sure that nothing was damaged in shipping and he is lovely… even better than the photos!  (The faceup is just gorgeous.)

The Wig Elaboration contest now has a Part 2, which will involve the winner of the advertised Part 1 forcibly coming to my house and trying to take him away from me.  I’m armed and reasonably dangerous.

Just kidding. ;)  He’s all packed up and waiting for his new owner!  Go play with some wigs and enter the contest!
